Grand Lake, Colorado

She has had a longtime love affair with the town; she and her fiance had their first date there, got engaged there and will now be married there. So I thought this was the ideal week to post an article about the town of Estes Park. As you’ll discover, I’ve had mixed

Sunday Afternoon Drive - Berthoud, Colorado

Spring has sprung in HeidiTown. The birds are singing, the fields outside of town are greening up and there’s a feeling of warmth in the air. This time of year puts me in the mood for road trips and Sunday afternoon drives. Metromix Denver recently released an article naming the 25 small Colorado towns to visit under $100.
